We have 1 person on sales enablement. It's been hit or miss throughout my time here. Sometimes we have someone running this and other times not. Unfortunately, I haven't seen huge value but I think there could be a lot of potential for someone to make an impact with this role

Agreed- thank you for sharing. What is it you think Sales enablement should be focusing on to make a great positive impact?ย

I find it super helpful when they create decks and materials for us to use with clients (saves me from having to try and make pretty things). That is their biggest value add from what I have had.ย 

They have organized trainings with our tool providers as well (think Outreach, Gong, LinkedIn etc etc). That is also helpful to do every once and a while.ย

Our Sales Enablement is awesome and super helpful. They do a great job of putting together resources and content in an easily accessible way. Role play sessions along with trainings over time to keep us sharp and keep learning to better ourselves.ย 

I think its great to have someone in this role so you aren't only relying on your boss for this type of help. Just another resource to help you grow.ย 

Curious if anyone has a different opinion on the role in general.

Thank you for sharing! That's great.ย 

I think you open up a great point... there are things we can use Sales enablement for that the manager doesn't need to spend time on. What are your favorite training sessions?

I'm sorry to hear.. It seems right now with how new sales enablement is that it's incredibly hit or miss.ย ย
